Thank you so much to the amazing Andy Nagy for featuring so much of Gary's work from throughout the years (which, in addition to Mad Martins, included solo recordings and with his band The Whisky Priests) in such esteemed company on the latest edition of his wonderful 'Black Jack Davy' show for WBRS 100.1FM last night.
The show featured as many as four tracks from the Mad Martins 3CD set and here's what Andy had to say about it : -
"What stories, and what storytelling, song writing! This is truly a masterpiece, up there in my initial reactions with Peter Bellamy's "Transports", Fairport's "Babacomb Lee", and Robb Johnson's "Gentle Men", three of the most extraordinary 'folk operas' ever written. Now there are four."
Wow! Thanks Andy - what a fabulous and generous quote!
